I do not use any capture card. I use a firewire port and my Sony DV-camera as analogue to digital converter 1:1, about 35GB for an hour of video.
Than edit (crop) overscan distortion and author DVD, it works just fine.[/QUOTE]
Yeah best way to transfer via firewire ,except not sure what the OP’s actual PC specs and or if firewire is an option for him/her… I don’t do much vcr to dvd these days…
